Golfers from the Cambridge based GOG MAGOG Golf Club have raised an amazing total of £7,750 for EACH in 2014.
EACH were chosen as the charity for both the Captain and the Lady Captain at the club in 2014. It costs £5,300 every day to pay for the services and care EACH provide in a day across Cambridgeshire, both at the Milton hospice, at families’ homes and in the community. The money raised by the golf club will more than pay for a whole day of care for those Cambridgeshire children, young people and their families receiving support from EACH.
Most of the funds were raised by a charity day at the club plus individual donations from members and friends throughout the year.
The EACH Pay for a Day scheme encourages groups and organisations to raise the £5,300 needed every day to keep services and care running in the county free of charge for children, young people and their families who live with life-threatening conditions. The chosen day for the GOG MAGOG Golf Club to fund is Wednesday 25th February.
EACH was the obvious choice for my Captains year. I met a young boy while I was receiving treatment for an illness and he told me about how EACH had helped him and also his family. I understood the importance of care and understanding for the whole family and this resonated with me as my children struggled with my illness.
I am thrilled we have raised enough money to fund a day at the Milton hospice, where I recently had a very enjoyable and informative visit. I found a happy and relaxed environment run by very professional and caring staff.
